Is this a robbery?
Maybe just a everyday mob's extortion.
What about "The money is in the box over there"? Duolingo is not accepting this version for some reason. As far as I know this should be correct grammar in American English.
Same here, reported it
"Money is over there in the box" - not accepted.
I put 'the money's over there in the box' and it was wrong(
Couldn't this be a nominal sentence?
A What money?
B The money over there, in the box.
What exactly does "вон/over" contribute to this sentence?
The same function that over serves in "over there" :D
Haha, yes. But it is difficult to articulate what it is even doing in English.
Doesn't "it's over there" just imply a moderate amount of additional distance between the speaker and the subject, compared to just "it's there"?
